K-mart in Australia is a downmarket piece of shit. They dumped something like 80% of their brand-name merchandise, around 5-6 years ago, and replaced it with it low-quality, in-house junk. I'm surprised that they even still sell video games at all.
if you can afford it. I don't know anyone who takes public transportation if they don't have to. A drive that takes me 30 minutes by Car used to take a legally blind buddy of mine 90. Try spending 3 hours a day on a smelly bus with cheap, uncomfortable seats.
Hi. Nice to meet you. I'm the person who will always take public transport in preference to a taxi, despite the fact that I can easily afford the taxi.
I don't care how much money I have, $15 for a trip from the centre of Melbourne to my inner city suburb is a complete rip-off.
That reason is Foxtel. It buys up the rights to everything at hugely inflated prices, and then charges an arm and a leg for consumers to get it.
Want Games of Thrones as it's released? Foxtel is the only legal game in town.
...the app. Only the website.
FTFA: a little pain was just part of the “Agile” way of doing things
Agile is now infecting the open-source world? Fuck it, I'm out. It's bad enough having to put up with all the "agile" bullshit at work, from their utterly pointless daily stand-up meetings to their fucking little cards on the wall everywhere (managers of the world: WE USE ELECTRONIC TRACKING SYSTEMS NOW). Add to that the unbearable Friday "retrospective" meetings (yeah, the last fucking thing I want to do on a Friday is sit in another pointless meeting talking about our problems) and then the Monday three hour meetings where we waste time voting on how long it should take other people to do their job instead of just fucking doing it.
Agile has killed any enjoyment there was in the IT field. If people are trying to pollute the open-source world with it, they can fuck off.
It's ridiculous. Why should people who aren't members of a party be allowed to have a say in who that party selects as candidates?
All bill numbers are recorded as they leave ATM machine and the cash flow is tracked.
Even if this were true, there is no recording of serial numbers on banknotes from shop cash registers, so the moment you spend a large banknote, there is no way that they can track that you're holding the banknotes that you get as change, nor of what you spent the original banknote on.
Clearly, the best path for people to take is to start feeding misinformation into the system. Periodically do searches for things you're not remotely interested in. Make them think you're a completely different age, sex, race, and socio-economic group. A database full of incorrect marketing information is worthless to anyone.
...these people are confusing astrology with astronomy, then it indicates that they are as stupid as they would be if they thought astrology was scientific.
What sort of a country, whose politicians are always going on about how much they believe in freedom, would even countenance introducing such legislation?
You conveniently forgot to mention that the military is still being paid.
You could save a fortune if you defunded them and brought them all home.
As an example, when we graduated college, our rite of passage into the accounting, law, consulting, engineering, and other similar professions was to work eighty hours a week
I'm a contractor. If you want me to work eighty hours a week, you will be paying me for eighty hours a week.
Would be nice if employers adhered to this mantra, too. But no, they make people work in demeaning open-plan offices, require them to attend purile team building sessions and generally treat their workforce like children. It's no wonder employees have contempt for them.
Yeah, I was wondering that myself. I think they mean "preventing outside researchers from getting in to research the outbreak".
